Checked out the hives. Lots of busy bees!
Here's what I did:
Toyon: my co-beek added a super as the 2nd deep. I know, should have used a deep but I forgot to get one and the bees needed room. I want to minimize swarms!
SJ: Hive looked busy, they have about half the frames in the super drawn out and have started to fill the cells with nectar. They even have some capped cells already. I slid the queen excluder in under the super to keep her majesty out. I did not see any brood or her so I figured it was safe.
MH: Wow! Super is drawn out and only the 2 outside frames are not capped! I was amazed. I checked all frames, no brood. So I slid in the excluder and a 2nd super under the first super. Lots and lots of honey!
